GWIC 2017 Charity Gala: Saturday, 25th February 2017

As many of you have heard, since last summer we have been thinking of a ‘Qipao Party’. The idea grew and bloomed into a high end ‘GWIC Charity Gala’ that will be held on Saturday February 25 evening at the Four Seasons Hotel Grand Ballroom!

The GWIC Board is now actively working on organizing a memorable evening open to all of our GWIC Members, Spouses and Friends.

We have kept the original Chinese theme and encourage everyone to come dressed in a Qipao or formal outfit with some Chinese flair to it.

The evening will have many surprises. Be prepared for a bubbly cocktail, 7 course meal, freeflow of wine, shows & fun on stage and dancing – all in the great GWIC spirit that we all appreciate so much.

The Gala will support the charity Hopeful Hearts – which is doing so much with underprivileged children undergoing heart surgery in Guangzhou.

Tickets can be purchased by:

  • contacting Lynda (wechat: LyndaFS) or
  • at the GWIC monthly Coffee & Teas.

Individual Prices:

400RMB (GWIC Member & Spouse, Early Bird before 18th January 2017)

480RMB (GWIC Member & Guests after 18th January 2017)

Table Price:

4000RMB for a table of 10

Please contact any board members for more information:
